5 Months


It is that time of the week again where I am updated of the things back home and also where I get to update you ka kra ka kra (small small). Hopefully this is somehow interesting and assures you that I am still alive and doing well.

Can you believe that the time is flying by like this? I still remember saying goodbye to people in Rexburg, Idaho and packing my bags and saying goodbye to the land of the free like it was yesterday.  I have been in Ghana for 5 months now . . . feels unreal! In these 5 months I have learned so much, seen so much, and have become a completely different person. This last week was nothing special but helped me understand my purpose better, along with me aligning my will with God's will.

This last week started out with a fun p-day activity.  The entire zone got together and played some fun missionary games.  Then we ate a powerful dinner. We had two new sister missionaries who just arrived to Tamale so it was nice to meet them and see some new faces.  It is kind of weird though being senior to someone.  Then on Wednesday, we planned this powerful day to teach these new investigators, but as we were leaving the apartment we received a call from the Mission President saying that we were having an emergency meeting at one of the chapels. Nobody knew about it until he called!  The meeting went for 3 hours and we talked about the needs of Tamale.  We talked about so much, but it resulted in the Mission President coming up with plans to fix problems and help with some of our needs. It was nice of him to drive 7 hours to this zone just to discuss the needs of the missionaries.
